Favours - or just thank yous for our readers / witnesses?
We are having 11 guests at our wedding, going for dinner afterwards at a fairly informal restaurant. I am not sure whether to decorate the table - I like making things but can't find a design that'd work - there's the added complication of going abroad so I can't be making anything edible or organising fresh flowers.
I'm not sure whether we need to do favours - they always seem a bit wasteful to me. We're giving out fans in the ceremony so maybe they're the favours? However we'd like to thank our witnesses and readers (our sisters) so should we give them something, or just write a card and put it at their place on the table?
